Webber confirms with Red Bull for 2013

Mark Webber has announced a contract extension deal with Red Bull Racing that will see him line up on the grid in Melbourne next March with the current Championship leaders.

Webber claimed the ninth win of his career on Sunday when he swept into the lead with just five laps to go in an incident-filled British Grand Prix.

"It was fantastic... an absolute dream," he said afterwards.
